gross-beeren (August 23,1813)
The three french Corps comprising the Army of Berlin under Oudinot, are advancing towards Berlin in three different columns unaware of the presence of the allied Army of the North. Whereas the IV french Corps (Bertrand) fights indecisively against the prussian IV Corps (Tauentzien) in Blankefelde, the VII Corps (Reynier) in Gross Beren clashes with the prussian III Corps (Bülow). Oudinot, at the head of XII Corps and the III Cavalry Corps is at some kilometers of Gros Beren.
The order of battle is based on:
Napoleon at Leipzig, George Nafziger, The Emperor Press
This was one of my first attempts with Napoleon's Battles. I used the first edition of Napoleon's Battles edited by Avalon Hill and the only modification allowed was the inclusion of divisional batteries without any further modificacion of the Fire mechanisms.
